    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out a job application online. This was followed by a followup questionnaire. Then the interview. It was over 5 hours, and I met with four different managers and directors, as well as 3 peers. This was mostly a getting-to-know-you-period -- they were looking at whether I would be a good fit for the company. There were also some "what would you do in this scenario" questions as well.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very psychological based in nature with situational based questions... I.E. Situation, task/result. The process can be involved to include: prescreen, interview 1:1, group or panel, and follow-up for finalists. HR is generally very good, yet senior mgmt is very slow to hire. The worst thing is that the interview format doesn't allow candidates a lot of flexibility to tell their story outside of situational questions. Some of the standard interview questions aren't applicable for every job and managers don't ask many original questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time you had to deal with ambiguity/ change management. Explain the situation and what steps you took to drive process improvement.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    The interview was quick, and we went over basic interview questions. We went over my work experience and how it would apply to Nationwide. I was then given a brief tour of the ground floors of headquarters. It was a positive experience. Not everyone's experience will be like mine. Most interviews are going to happen with a director or manager, and may have technical questions involved.

    Marketing Leadership Rotational Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nationwide (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    My 1st Interview at University and 2nd Interview at Nationwide in Columbus, Ohio. The initial interview was laid back. Following the first interview, I did not receive a call back for two months. After a couple months, they finally called back and invited me to interview at their corporate office. There were 3 interviews and it took the whole day and overall it went well. Following this interview, they NEVER called back. Not even a polite acknowledgement that I did not have an offer. This is an embarrassment for such a large company. If a candidate is willing to dedicate several hours toward your interview process, it is pathetic that they will not get back to their candidates.
